first_imgTHE Ministry of Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs (MoIPA) and the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) have organised a double-header in aid of relief to persons in the Caribbean who are affected by the two recent Hurricanes Irma and Maria.The MoIPA has fielded two Heritage All-Stars football teams that will be up against the Guyana Football Federation President’s XI team and an U-17 team in two charity matches this Sunday.The games will take place at the Everest Cricket Club ground in aid of persons in the Caribbean who were affected by the natural disaster.This is a collaborative effort between the Ministry of Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs (MoIPA) and the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) female team.This match-up comes hot on the heels of the just concluded Annual Indigenous Heritage Games that saw female defending champs out of Region 7 Paruima retain their title, while Port Kaituma defied all odds to bag the male title.The MoIPA and the GFF see this as its corporate responsibility to support such a worthy cause since a number of Guyanese who live in the Caribbean were adversely affected.The Heritage All-Stars team includes Frankie Parks, Kacy De Silva, Joshua Aaron, Keith James, Murphy Felix, Keiron Solomon, Albert Smith, Mark Valenzuela, Nicholas Peters, Lindel Joseph, Ackley Bucknan, Gerald Isaacs, Colloyer Daniels, Canadian Smith, Clinton Williams, Delano Mentore, Kevin Mingo, Seon Semple, Jagong Jagok, Jason Ramjohn, Julian Joseph and Troy McLennon.The ball-weavers take to the field in the evening’s first match at 18:00hrs, followed by the feature encounter at 20:00hrs.Admission is $500 and all proceeds will go to those affected by the hurricanes.last_img
